All recruiting activities are managed through our online recruiting system, USC JobMate. Interviewing provides a traditional method for employers to visit campus personally to meet pre-selected candidates using the following steps and ideal timeline:
- 4 weeks prior to interview date, students view your job description(s) on USC JobMate.
- 3 weeks prior, resumes of students who have applied for your position(s) are sent to you via email.
- 2 weeks prior, you select candidates you wish to interview, and students sign up for time slots.
The standard 45-minute schedule = 9 interviews per day. A standard 30-minute schedule = 13 interviews per day. Interviews typically begin at 8:30 a.m.
Telephone and video conference (virtual) interviews are available. To schedule, click here.
Business Expo Career Event
The Darla Moore School of Business's Office of Career Management hosts an annual Business Expo each fall in Columbia. The event is open to qualified juniors and seniors as well as graduate students. More than 700 graduate and undergraduate students attended Business Expo 2012, with over 150 recruiters (80 employers) participating.
This networking event provides employers the opportunity to meet students from the nationally ranked IMBA program, master's level students in Human Resources, International Business, Economics, Accounting, and experienced candidates from our Professional MBA program. Employers will also meet qualified undergraduate students, including those enrolled in the nationally ranked undergraduate international business program.
Information Sessions and Lobby Displays
Interest-Generating Information Sessions
This type of information session/reception is usually scheduled 4-5 weeks prior to on-campus interviews. The purpose is to introduce your available positions to targeted students determining both the candidates' qualifications and cultural fit. This is especially important in creating campus awareness if you have not previously recruited at the Moore School.
Pre-Interview Information Sessions
Many employers prefer to conduct information sessions the night before an interview date. Information sessions allow you to tell your organization's story one time, so interview time is better spent on interacting with talented candidates.
A lobby display table is a great way for companies to promote their organization to Moore School students. This allows you to interact with our student population while promoting your full-time and/or internship opportunities.
